My novel aka #classifiednovel is on the fantasy/paranormal side of things but I am aiming for some strong characters. I feel like currently, I am on the right track but they can be taken to the next level still. Some of my favorite books are very character based even while being inside fantasy worlds. The Giver, Fahrenheit 451, Katniss in The Hunger Games being a few of them. So this is where you come in! I need some strong character books as sort of research for my book. I don't read much contemporary but I am trying to branch out into them. I want to know what are some of your beloved characters and some of the best emotional books in YA are. They can be current YA or anything back in time so bring on the recommendations!
PS...Book Club went amazing tonight while we discussed Wither by Lauren Destefano. I loved this book even though it gave me creepy shivers being in this world. I will be reading Fever when it hits the shelves to see where the story goes next. And yet again, I learned sooooo much just talking with a group of people about what they liked and didn't like with the book. This let alone, has helped me become a better writer. I can't wait to see what more it has to offer.
